My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1364: To The Scroll Saw!

31 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was able to finish up my drawing yesterday. Whether or not I was able to squeak the project in under the deadline for submissions remains to be seen. I honestly was not sure of the cutoff date, but in some ways (to me, anyway) it didn't really matter. Either way I wanted to create these designs. Either way I win. As time goes by and and I do what I do longer and longer, I have discovered that there are a world of options open for me. I used to get rather tense about deadlines and t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1311: Some Beautiful Work and a Video From a Friend

107 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today I am doing some cutting for the topper for my banners and writing the patterns packet, so I really don't have much of my own work to show you. However, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to share a video with you that my friend Leldon Maxcy just made on how to cut inlay pieces for scroll sawn ornaments.I have known Leldon for probably about 15 years.  That's pretty long considering how young he is!  I met him at a woodworking show when he was only a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1293: New Projects on our Site

127 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It was a very tumultuous night here in Nova Scotia. I don’t think I heard wind like that in all the years that I had been living here. At least it was warm though, as we heard that nearly everyone located west of us was once again experiencing snow. I fully expected to wake up to more snow on the ground, but it is still very warm and raining. The wind gusts were fierce. They awoke me several times, as the house was actually shaking. At about 3:30 in the morning, we heard our recycl...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1134: Getting Back to Routine

332 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Good morning on this beautiful Monday. Some time over the weekend, the season of autumn crept in and it is amazing how profound the changes in the morning are even though it is only a few days old. As I wake up each morning, I notice that it is just a bit darker outside, and the cool, crisp air simply smells of the change of season. I look across the road to the trees along the river and each day notice that they are beginning to blush a bit and every so slightly the leaves are changing c...

Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga #9: Merlot Anyone?! - The Marquetry Wine Box Saga

487 days ago by justoneofme | 16 comments »

Holy Moly but time is flying by!! There are slips of paper all around my kitchen desk (where I’m blogging to you all on my laptop at this very moment!) ... messages reminding me to do this … do that … don’t forget … appointments to keep … plans to make … phone calls. Yikes!! I don’t know about you folks, but when I see this kind of mess pile up I just head straight to the workshop :) Today I couldn’t avoid it any longer … the mes...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #926: Snowflake Tray - Version 2

591 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I had a good day yesterday finishing up my new snowflake candle tray and getting some instructions written. I know the tray looked finished yesterday, but I wanted to see how it would look with a little tint and – yes – some sparkles added to it. I was certainly not disappointed. I had purposely used ash to cut the tray because of its light color. While maple can be light in color like the ash, I find that sometimes the grain is very nondescript and when I use stain or color...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #887: What Was I Thinking?

633 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Any of you who know me know that I tend to be an optimist at times. You also know that I sometimes underestimate the time it takes me to do something. Well it seems that yesterday my optimism collided with my underestimation and I made the mistake of saying that my sled ornaments would be completed today. Oh, they are cut and sanded. Everything came out really nice I thought and worked like it should. As a matter of fact, I found a great deal of pleasure in cutting these ornaments out. Wh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #669: Hello Yellow Brick Road

861 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

What a good day yesterday turned out to be. After the sluggishness of the past several days, it felt really good to have a day where I felt like I moved ahead and accomplished a great deal. I think my lull is over for now, and I hope that I can keep this momentum that I have and continue to cross things off of the list. My goal yesterday was to get through cutting the witch boots for the kits that I am making. I need 1200 of them to make the 100 kits and it is somewhat of a daunting ta...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #640: Sharing Our Passion

890 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

There are many different avenues that one can take and still be on a creative path. While having choices is good, there are times when there are almost too many things to choose from and only so many hours in the day. While most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘spreading ourselves too thin’, there are times when things are not as defined as we would like them to be as far as which path to follow and it is hard not to want to do everything at once. I often feel that this is t...

Trying out the Consignment Route #1: Getting Ready..........

1179 days ago by KnotCurser | 7 comments »

So, My wife and I visited a “Kitschy Artsy” shop in Havre’ De Grace, Maryland a few weeks back and started talking to one of the owners about a really nice Stained Glass Portrait of John Lennon. My wife mentioned that it looked a lot like one of my scroll-work pieces. One thing lead to another, and I was asked if I would be willing to sell my artwork on consignment at her shop? At first thought, the answer is “Of course I would – I would be GLAD to!”...
